Grilled Sockeye Salmon

Warm weather is right around the corner.  Really, I swear it is!  Pretty soon we will be cooking our dinners on the grill.  Here is a great salmon recipe to try this spring.

Here's how to make a delicious Salmon Steak on the grill.

What you'll need:

Salmon, Cedar Plank, Marinade, Grill

How to Prepare:

Soak cedar plank in water for around 15-20 minutes.


Prepare marinade:  Olive Oil, Lemon, Garlic, and Parsley.  This is a very simple and delicious marinade.  You can use any spices and herbs you want but give this one a try, I think you'll like it.

Put salmon on cedar board then top salmon with marinade.  I have also soaked the fish in the marinade over night but have found the lemon flavor isn't as strong.  I prefer topping the fish right before I cook it.

Place salmon on grill.  I have a 4 burner grill, so I turn off the middle two burners and leave the outer burners on high.  Close the lid and let cook for 20-30 minutes.  Cooking times will vary depending on size of salmon and heat of grill.


10min.

25min.  Ready to eat!

The cedar plank gives the fish a slight "smokey" flavor and keeps the salmon very moist.  Give it a try and let me know what you think!

Where do you purchase your cedar planks??

You can buy planks in most grilling sections in the store, but you are going to pay around $5 for a couple boards. I bought an 8 foot cedar plank at Lowes (make sure it's untreated wood) for around $5 and cut it into pieces. I got about 15 pieces out of that 1 board. You can also reuse the boards a couple times. I usually use them twice then throw them out because they get a bit charred.
